Wedding Location and Airport Information

Our wedding will be in Bellagio, Lake Como, Italy. The fastest/easiest option is to fly into Milan (MXP). You can rent a car from the airport however a car is not necessary once you're in Lake Como (see below for more info). The other option is to take the train/ferry. The train takes ~ 1.5 hours and there is one transfer mid-journey. From there you will take a beautiful ferry ride from Como to Bellagio. We have done this multiple times and it's quite feasible to navigate! The hardest part is managing your luggage so keep that in mind. We can provide exact instructions with every step along the way for you once you have your flight arrival time in Milan. If you are spending time in Milan before coming to Lake Como there is a direct train from Milan Central.

You can also fly into Zurich (ZRH) if you would like to enjoy some of the Swiss Alps along your way! You would rent a car there and drive south ~3.5 hours to Lake Como.
We have also done this route once and it too is very manageable.

Getting Around Lake Como

You may rent a car if you choose but it's not necessary - you can explore most of Lake Como without one! Ferries are one of the main modes of transportation- they're easy, efficient, and inexpensive. Each town is walkable and there are taxis if you ever need one. However if you don't feel comfortable navigating public transportation with luggage from the airport then a car would be a good option.

Where to Stay in Lake Como

There are a plethora of adorable little towns you can stay in all around Lake Como so adventure as you choose! However, Bellagio and the two nearby towns, Varenna, & Menaggio, are some of the main hot spots. If you choose to stay in Varenna or Menaggio the ferry runs all day to Bellagio and only takes 15 min (5 euros each way) to each of these towns. We do recommend staying in Bellagio the Saturday night of the wedding as the ferries stop running between 8pm-11pm depending on where you are staying.
